Why?

Crossover day is Friday.  Now, I am not an authoritarian on General Assembly rules, but from what I know bills must pass either house by the 30th day of the session; furthermore, bills not passed during an election year die at the end of the legislative session.  Now I know he is the speaker and all, but seriously do you really expect a major ethics reform bill to clear committee and be passed by the House of Representatives before Friday. 

If republicans were serious about ethics reform, this would have been priority #1 and introduced in January.  It didn’t need study, we know what the problem was and is.
